For Sale: Eunos Roadster

28 02 2011

I’ve had a blast with the Roadster.  It’s been the most fun I’ve ever had on 4 wheels, and I’m going to miss her when she’s gone.  However, new jobs where both me and my other half are commuting from Manchester to North Wales each day, combined with childcare problems with only one of us able to do the drop off and pick up at school, means that she’s up for sale.  Hopefully to a good home.

On the plus side, my sensible family transport that replaces it is a 2004 Audi TT with 265BHP, £1500 of Tarox brakes, a blue Haldex upgrade and Neuspeed ARBs all round.  Some consolation.

For Sale:  Eunos Roadster – G-Limited.

1994, 1.8i, 44,000 miles with long tax/MOT.  Awesome condition all round.

£2100 for quick sale.




This car was imported a couple of years ago by a local mechanic as a present for his wife, before they separated.  It then spent a year and a half in his garage being buffed to perfection before I got him to register it for the UK and sell it to me.  I’ve owned the car since Nov 2009.

The car’s immaculate.  She’s got a genuine 45,000 miles on her and there’s not a spot of rust anywhere.  The sills, the underneath, the bodywork – all are original and unmarked, no dodgy repairs etc here.  It’s got tax and long MOT, sailed through with no advisories whatsoever.

She had a new blue roof fitted by the previous owner, which doesn’t leak and is still in perfect condition.  The G-Limited is a bit of a rareity, coming in Satellite Blue metallic, with two-piece blue Alcantara seats and a full set of underbody braces.



Since I’ve had her either Mazdamender or myself have done the following:

  • Fully serviced, all new belts, radiator replaced, hoses replaced, water pump replaced.
  • Oil/filter changed every 3k miles with fully synth.  No HLA noise or hot tick!  Last service approx 1000 miles ago with Motul 8100 fully synth.
  • Electric windows stripped and serviced
  • New plugs and HT leads
  • Engine bay steam-cleaned!
  • Central locking and Thatcham Cat 1 alarm installed with certificate
  • Matte-finish instrument cowl
  • 15” freshly powder-coated Hockenheim wheels with Mazdaspeed center caps and great condition Rainsport II tyres all round.
  • MX5parts twin exit exhaust.  Sounds amazing, virtually new.
  • K&N 57i air filter plus heatshield
  • Front lip spoiler, stainless radiator grille
  • Gear turret oil and bush replaced with Redline MTL-90
  • New Rokkor coilovers fitted, set to a sensible but low ride height – no scrapes!
  • Lovingly striped by myself, the vinyl is easily removeable if not to your taste though.
  • Crystal front sidelights with LEDs, crystal side indicators and repeaters.  H4 light conversion and Philips Extrem bulbs, properly aligned!
  • IL Motorsports roll/style bar (whilst this isn’t a full Track Dog roll bar, this is one of the more robust ones that also stiffens the car)
  • Custom dials and all interior lighting converted to red illumination
  • Decent stereo and coaxial speakers, doors fully Dynamatted, sounds great
  • Lots of interior toys such as Joyfast shift knob, custom retro electric window switches (as designed by me and my guide to producing them got over 3000 hits!), retro door pulls, Nielex-style toggles, heavy-chrome hood latches, chrome door cups, vent rings, sleepy eyes button, cubby hole clock, decent car mats, LED interior lights, custom Momo Race wheel, alloy handbrake
  • LED third (optional flashing) brake light
  • Stebel airhorn.  Trust me, you’ll like this cheeky Italian number.
  • Once I’ve hoovered out a few crisp crumbs the interior is mint.
  • Bodywork in great condition, paint also in great condition.  No rusty bits, dings or other problems.  Underside of the car also in great condition as I jetwashed regularly in the two UK winters it’s seen.
  • Loads more I’m sure I’ve forgotten.
  • Comes with two keys and two alarm fobs





I’m in Handforth, South Manchester.

I’d really like her to go to a good home – summer’s coming!  I don’t want to part her out and would prefer to sell to a fellow Nutzer…

Oh no! This makes me sad. 😦

But good luck with the sale.

I know. I feel bad too. New job for both me and the missus means we’re both commuting 100 miles/day though, and I don’t want to kill the roadster doing this. A nice man who used to run MGB’s back in the day is picking her up next week when I’m back from Seattle. I’m driving a fairly modified Audi TT mk1 in the meantime. Nothing like as much fun (although fast as hell) and I’d imagine I’ll be back in a Mazda at some point…
